Ghosts of Record Stores Past and Present

Much of my youth was spent hunting for and playing vinyl. I have created this site to remember many of the stores I've visited. Don't try and visit them without calling first, as many of them are no longer with us. If I've posted a picture of a store that you want me to delete please let me know and I'll take it down. To see a particular store just open the photo album with its name on it or click on the green (open) or red (closed) marker in the map below. Expanding the map will reveal more stores in the same city.

The site also contains links to interesting articles and information on record shops and record collecting and fine musical suggestions and playlists for your listening pleasure (with You Tube links so you can check them out for yourself). The Playlists can be found by scrolling to a separate section of the index under the heading musical resources. And our latest addition, Song of the Day, a glimpse at what's playing on my stereo today, appears there as well.

Song Of The Day

Belle and Sebastian - Like Dylan In The Movies

Today's song of the day is from Belle and Sebastian - Like Dylan In The Movies .  Perfect indie pop from a Scotish band that started out as a school project.  Led by Stuart Murdoch, this song is from the perfect album If You're Feeling Sinister from 1996.  I could have picked any number of songs from this album (Stars of Track and Field, Mayfly), but the video for this was perfect, especially for a band that does not feature itself on the cover of its albums - just remember its not Dylan singing this song.  I've read Mr. Murdoch favors Love, always a good place to start.
